The source further identified the student only as Clement, stating that the Grade 9 pupil was now living with the teacher.
“This schoolboy has now moved to Ms Bwalya (the teacher’s) house and they have a son now, but to our surprise the education authorities in the district have not acted over this matter despite it being shameful to the integrity of the teaching fraternity,” the sources said.
In addition, “As much as anybody is free to choose their partner, we feel this one is somehow tricky especially that it involved someone who is [was] a pupil.”
According to the source, the young female teacher got attracted to the boy due to his extra-ordinary football prowess.
“It seems the teacher was attracted to the boy because he is good at football, but female teachers at this school have not lived to their high moral expectation regarding their standing in society. Some of them have been married to villagers in polygamous arrangements and the wives of these men in the villages are complaining,”he added.
Meanwhile, according to the district head Mr. Malama, the pupil dropped out of school four years ago.
“What I have been told is that the boy dropped out of school four years ago and after staying in the village; that is when he fell in love with the teacher,” he narrated.
